→→→→ vertical line TOPIC: HARD TO QUIT DRINKING FRIEND
vertical line Posted on Jan.12.2008 @ 01:17PM EDT by kelvintan

Having a nice time

Even drinking as pastime

Never treasure your time

Rifting away precious time

Years of lost time

 

You got free time

Even idle away time

Only left some time

 

How much more time?

Only have one lifetime

Not so much time

Gone are those times

 

Choose your own time

Have no other time

Until you lose time

After this entire lifetime

No more remaining time

That was his lifetime.
If you want to see him again,
Just wait for the next time.

vertical line L'Arbre du Ténéré, of the Sahara, [in English - the Tree of Ténéré], an acacia, was once the most isolated tree on the earth, the only living tree within 400km. She was knocked down and killed by a drunk driver in the 1970s. So, they moved the dead remains of the tree to a museum and erected a metal sculpture in her place.

Alcohol is a very hard task-master.

Only recently, a friend of 40+ years died from Cirrhosis of the Liver.

His body has been injured in an alcohol related accident,

and he was severly disabled most of his life.

Alcohol has no compassion, and it is very jealous.

It will take everything away, except desire for alcohol itself.

I am very wary of it.
